tv   Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans  CNN  June 10, 2016 2:00am-3:01am PDT

2:00 am
base starting with evangelicals. his strategy ahead. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> good morning. i'm alison kosik. it's friday, june 10th. 5:00 a.m. in the east. top democrats are closing ranks behind hillary clinton in a highly choreographed effort to elevate clinton as the presumptive nominee and disarm her democratic rival. president obama met with bernie sanders at the white house. two hours later, the clinton campaign dropped a web video unveiling the president's long anticipated endorsement of hillary clinton. michelle kosinski has the latest. >> reporter: alison and christine, to see this play out was truly remarkable. here we have a presidential endorsement in a video on twitter that was released by the hillary clinton campaign. when has that ever happened? it was record the on tuesday. well produced.

2:01 am
you could hear the music. it was clear the white house wanted to let the meeting play out. private meeting between the president and bernie sanders at the white house yesterday. it was a lengthy meeting. let that discussion happen. let the president hear out bernie sanders and work on a path forward. how will he be engaged? how will he work with the white house and hillary clinton? then as soon as that meeting was off over, bam. the endorsement was out. >> i know how hard this job can be. that's why i know hillary will be so good at it. in fact, i don't think there's ever been someone so qualified to hold this office. she's got the courage, the compassion and the heart to get the job done. i say that as somebody who had to debate her more than 20 times. i'm with her. i am fired up and i cannot wait to get out there and campaign for hillary. >> reporter: the white house is
2:02 am
waiting no time on that. the president is free, unleashed. he is hitting the campaign trail on wednesday with hillary clinton in wisconsin. for democrats right now, it is all about unity. they want sanders many supporters to ultimately support hillary clinton. they feel that sanders voice will be crucial in that to rally them and ultimately go to her side. as well as the voice of president obama who is such a powerful influence on the younger voters. alison and christine. >> thank you, michelle. democrats move to unite and donald trump has an issue to get republicans to line up behind him. paul ryan say they should back the presumptive nominee even if they don't agree with everything he says. >> we have a better chance of putting these better ideas in place with a trump presidency than with hillary clinton presidency. >> do you worry that people hear
2:03 am
that and getting your agenda passed into law is more important to you than how our nation looks and our president acts? >> yeah. that's' legitimate question, i think. that's why i condemn his comments as clearly as i can. i've spoken to him about it. i think this has to change. he that's fix it. >> trump will work to rally the republican base headlining the faith and freedom coalition conference. then trump heads to richmond for a rally tonight at 8:00. two stops on the busy schedule trump promised party donors on thursday he would keep up to beat clinton in november. joining to us break it all down is tal kopan. you finally have the big show of unity among democrats for hillary clinton. a big move from all corners. senator elizabeth warren who has
2:04 am
been the only female senator holdout who would not officially endorse hillary clinton months ago. she said i'm ready to jump in the fight and make sure donald trump gets nowhere near the white house. i'm supporting hillary clinton. a fighter. she and joe biden go on to attack donald trump. team trump has been trying to put the judge controversy behind him and move forward and democrats are not going to let that happen. listen to what she said. getting a lot of attention. >> he has personally, personally directed his army of campaign surrogates to step up their own public attacks on judge curiel. trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defend himself. exactly what you would expect from a thin skinned, racist
2:05 am
bully. >> how effective will elizabeth warren be now she is in the corner of hillary clinton? even as bernie sanders is still holding on. >> she has been auditioning for the role of attack dog for some time now. she has been going on twitter rants against donald trump that have gotten under his skin. on the one hand, i think there was a long stretch during the primary that hillary clinton would have loved some of these endorsements and they held out, the president and vice president and elizabeth warren. until it was clear that sanders was ready to find down the campaign. the upside of that waiting period, she is hitting this general election running full steam with this powerful group of democrats behind her ready to go after donald trump. >> we see elizabeth warren rally behind hillary clinton. we see the rnc coming out with a
2:06 am
statement calling her a sellout. elizabeth warren and sellout and the hillary clinton speeches on wall street and ties to the fossil fuel industry. the rnc saying with elizabeth warren standing behind her, she is standing behind efforts she is against. >> it is unclear with this line of attack. swirling below this is the speculation if warren is on the short list for vice president. warren's credentials on wall street and a purest on the topics that propelled her to the senate could help hillary clinton recruit some of that base of bernie sanders that really believed in those issues that he spoke so deeply about. it is a tbd. it is unclear if she is on the short list.
2:07 am
senate democrats seem to hope she is. >> another powerful moment for democrats is joe biden and his endorsement of hillary clinton and his attack against donald trump. listen to what he said again about the judge controversy that republicans would like to put behind them. democrats will not let them do that. >> i find donald trump's conduct in this regard reprehensible. evidenced by the contact. a dangerous attack and pillar of democra democracy. threats of intimidation and under cutting the legitimacy of the judge by suggesting that because of his heritage he is incapable of being fair. and in addition to this, it is racist. >> we had seen some muted praise from republican establishment types for the new donald trump performance after california that he is looking forward and
2:08 am
talking about helping his party. not letting his party down. do you think that donald trump will be able to get beyond this judge thing even if you have joe biden and elizabeth warren and bill clinton and others out there continually bringing it up? >> if donald trump wants to get beyond this, i think to a certain extent, he will. he continues to double down on it. if he let's it go away, democrats can continue to bring it up. it will lose resonance at some point. if he continues to make these comments, he will continue to give them ammunition. a truism in politics, or everything, is timing. when you talk about the rollout of the general election, this is sort of the first week of the general election match up, trump has come in bruised and battered. hillary clinton has a historic moment with the endorsements coming and giving her wind in
2:09 am
her sails. it is a difficult week for him. i highly doubt this particular controversy is going to be one that we are talking about for months. there will be other things that come up for sure. >> interesting. tal, thank you for joining us. talk to you in a bit. >> in about 20 minutes. time for an early start on your money. stocks around the world are lower. dragging dow futures down. the selling trigger fears about global growth. you see some talking about brexit. that vote on june 23rd. stocks lower. investors piling in u.s. treasury bonds driving the yield down to the lowest since february. puerto rico is one step closer to the government bailout. last night the u.s. house of representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill to help the island avoid collapse. this is hailed as a bipartisan compromise. president obama and hillary clinton support it. so does house speaker paul ryan. it could make it through the senate and president's desk

out. the defendant, brock turner, got just six months in jail. now it appears he will spend less time behind bars. more from dan simon. >> reporter: we are at the santa clara county jail where the former stanford athlete is serving his short jail term. we are told that brock turner is in protective custody given the high profile nature of the crime. he was sentenced originally to six months in jail. but it is just going to be three months. often times california inmates are released early as long as there are not behavior problems due to overcrowding. as you can imagine, people on the stanford campus are outraged. here is what some had to say. >> a lot of people say it is white privilege. i would agree. i think it has to do with class and money and the resources that people have here. i don't think it is fair. >> after reading the letter from the victim, it sounds that it is

not really giving her justice in that sense. that's sad. >> i think in general justice is not served on this issue. this is bringing it to the limelight. >> reporter: this is felt widely on campus that graduating seniors are planning some demonstration during the commencement this weekend. we are learning a bit more about brock turner's past. in his letter to the judge, he characterized himself as naive and grew up in a small town in ohio who pretty much had no experience when it came to drugs and alcohol. prosecutors say that is a lie. on his cell phone, they uncovered text messages and photos that he did in fact use alcohol and drugs. even in high school, some including concentrated marijuana and lsd. >> dan simon. thank you. the growing outrage every day is from the rapist to the rapist's

unveiling the long anticipated endorsement of hillary clinton. michelle kosinski has the latest for us. >> reporter: alison and christine, to see it play out was truly remarkable. we have a presidential endorsement in a video on twitter that was released by the hillary clinton campaign. it was well produced. you could hear the music behind it there. it was clear the white house wanted to let this private meeting play out with bernie sanders yesterday. a lengthy meeting. let that discussion happen. let the president hear out bernie sanders and work on a path forward. how will he be engaged? how will be work with the white house and hillary clinton? and when that meeting was over, within two hours, the endorsement was out. the president wasn't holding back. >> i know how hard this job can be. that's why i know hillary will

virginia for a rally tonight at 8:00. two stops on the stop on thursday. so much happening. joining us to break it down is political reporter tal kopan. she is in the washington bureau. good morning. >> good morning. >> we are watching the hillary clinton train moving forward with support on it. case in point, senator elizabeth warren saying this, i'm ready to jump in this fight to make sure that hillary clinton is our next president. i'm supporting hillary clinton because she is a fighter. a fighter with guts. we watched warren wasting no time eviscerating donald trump. listen to this. >> he has personally directed his army of campaign surrogates
2:35 am
to step up their own public attacks on judge curiel. trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defend himself. exactly what you would expect from a thin skinned racist bully. >> all right. you know what they say. what's good for the goose is good for the gander. she is fighting back hard. is she positioning for a vp slot? is the country ready for two women on the ticket? >> it looks like she is a bit auditioning for the role of attack dog against donald trump. whether that's what hillary clinton wants in her vice president, the door is left open in interviews and speculation. it is something that is put out there. if you ask several people in washington, including harry reid and nancy pelosi, a two-woman ticket is something on the table. vice presidential speculation can be tricky.
2:36 am
sometimes the obvious choice is the last name that actually ends up on the table. this is something everyone in washington is watching carefully. her name is pushed by several high powered democrats. the clinton camp is the one that makes the decision. they can sometimes surprise us. >> the current vice president spiking out for hillary clinton and against donald trump. again hitting on the judge curiel controversy. the controversy the republicans would like to put behind them. they would like to not talk about the heritage of the judge and impartiality of the judge. listen to what joe biden said. >> i find donald trump's conduct in this regard reprehensible. evidenced by the by paipartisan condemnation for what it is. the threats of intimidation and under cutting the legitimacy of the judge by suggesting the
2:37 am
heritage he is incapable of being fair. in addition to this, it is racist. >> so joe biden really clear on his views on this. do you think donald trump is going to be able to put that judge issue behind him if you have top democrats saying this is why he's not qualified to be president? >> at some point it is likely donald trump will stop giving the democrats ammunition to keep raising this issue. you know, he's continued to back up these comments every time he's asked. at some point, you know, the media will grow less interested in it. democrats will push the topic. it will get stale and the american public will be interested in something else. that is how the political cycle works. we may continue to see it in attack ads down the line. it will not go away completely. i think that is not the way the campaign cycle has worked. we have seen tons of
2:38 am
controversies discussed. is this the bullet that sinks donald trump's campaign. lo and behold, two weeks later, we are talking about something different. >> tal, i want to talk about the usa today. >> top of the fold. >> trump's trail of unpaid bills. this is an interesting story that usa today wrote saying donald trump basically stiffed people who worked for him. people like plumbers and waiters and painters. usa today interviewed hundreds of people who worked for donald trump. even stiffing attorneys. how damaging can a report like this be? >> it is working class. the very people donald trump has inspired. working class people who he said he will protect their jobs. the way that trump, the hallmark of his business, is stiffing people. >> how damaging do you think it is? >> it is damaging. it is interesting. the campaign has been about who
2:39 am
is donald trump. the republicans are criticized for not taking him seriously early on and not putting out research early on. this reminds me of the trump tower story. marco rubio hit him hard on this early in the campaign and it didn't matter. it is interesting seeing hillary clinton trying to paint him as a con man and not a stand-up guy for the working class. we will see if she can define him early enough in the general election or if trump is defined in people's minds already coming out of the primary. it may be a little too little too late for the democrats to make an impact. we will see what staying power this has. we have seen it before. >> donald trump made a name for himself against international trade deals and unfairness of the trade deals. he said the president is slow
2:40 am
jamming on jimmy fallon last night. >> the american people face the important decision this fall. the entire world is watching. they look to us for stability and leadership. now, i know some of the presidential candidates have been critical of my foreign policy. i don't want to name any names. >> he's talking about donald trump. >> jimmy, the tpp allows american businesses to sell their products both at home and abroad. the more we sell abroad, the more higher paying jobs we provide here at home. it's that simple. >> what year saying is the trade deal will help put every day americans back to -- >> work, work, work, put us back to work, work, work. >> he managed to make tpp interesting. >> yeah. i was going to say. i don't know all of the trade nerds would think the topic would be a focal point. >> trade nerds unite. jimmy fallon.

so i don't think it is fair. >> after reading the letter from the victim, it really sounds that it is not really like giving her justice in that sense. that's really sad. >> i think in general justice is not served when it comes to this issue. this is bringing that to the limelight. >> reporter: this is felt widely on campus that graduating seniors are planning some demonstration during the commencement. we are learning more about turner's past. in the letter to the judge, he characterized himself as naive and growing up in a small town in ohio who pretty much had no experience when it came to drugs and alcohol. prosecutors say that is an outright lie. on his cell phone, they uncovered texts and photos that reveal he did use drugs and alcohol. even in high school. it included concentrated marijuana and lsd. >> at odds with what was
